The report said that China was capable of improving millions of lives and saving billions of dollars by using more renewable energy-which would reduce the costs of healthcare by reducing emissions.

Adnan Z. Amin, director-general of the agency said that as the largest energy consumer in the world, China must play a pivotal role in the global transition to a sustainable energy future.

The report further said that under current policies, share of renewables in China's total energy mix would only rise to 17 percent by 2030.

The report added that if China accelerated the pace, it would reach 26 percent.
